Easy Hot-Cross Buns

1 pkg dry yeast, 2/3 cup warm water, 1 egg, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 3/4 cup Bisquick, 1/2 t. cinnamon, 1/4 t. nutmeg, 1/2 cup raisins, 1/4 cup chopped citron, 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar, 1 - 2 t. orange juice.

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add egg, sugar, and 1 1/2 cups Bisquick. Using an electric mixer blend at low speed for 1/2 minute. (An egg beater will also work.) Then beat 2 minutes at medium speed. Stir in rest of the Bisquick, spices & fruit. Beat 1/2 minute more at medium speed.

Spoon into 12 greased medium muffin cups. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double (about 1 hour). Bake 15 - 20 minutes at 375 degrees. Remove from oven and pan and let cool.
